CORDIS is managed by the Publications Office of the European Union on behalf of the European Commission's research and innovation Directorates-General, Executive Agencies and Joint Undertakings to bring research results to professionals in the field fostering open science as well as to create innovative products and services and stimulate growth across Europe.
In the article, CORDIS highlights that the EU-funded CoEXist project used structured scenario-based analysis to establish some certainties and derive recommendations to guide cities towards automation readiness, which is defined in the project as ‘having the capability to make structured and informed decisions about the deployment of CAV’. CoEXist examined various cases studies, analysing the impacts of CAVs on different types of road infrastructure and the transport network. CoEXist mainly targets road authorities, mobility planners and other urban mobility stakeholders by providing support, guidance and tools that strengthen their capabilities to make informed decisions on the deployment of CCAM.
The project coordinator, our director Siegfried Rupprecht, provides the concluding statement of the article: “The hope is that these efforts to align technological progress with public policy and sustainability goals will benefit society in general and contribute to achieving sustainable urban mobility around the world.”
